Health & Safety Guidance

The Statesville Pumpkin Fest is an outdoor event and will follow all local, state, and federal restrictions in effect at the time of the event. We encourage attendees to determine if this year is the right time for your family to visit. We respect every person’s right to make the best decision they can for themselves and their family.

If you want to beat the crowds, consider attending before lunch. This is the time you’ll be in contact with smaller gatherings of people.

Social distance. With the festival spread throughout downtown, there is the opportunity for people to socially distance themselves.

Wash your hands. Frequent hand washing is one of the main ways you can mitigate risk. There will be porta potties and outdoor hand washing stations in key locations throughout the festival. There will also be readily available hand sanitizer at many of the food booths, vendor booths, and kids zone. 

Don't feel well? Stay home. If you or someone you have had direct contact with is not feeling well, please get tested before you visit the festival.
